Happy Mail, Happy Birthday, Happy Day

It has been really crazy, hectic and stressful at work this past week or so, but it is all temporary and will be back to 'normal' soon. One good thing about having a bit of a commute to and from work is you have some time to prepare (get your head in the game, so to speak) and on the way home, wind down (cranking up my favorite tunes always helps!)

Tonight as I was pulling into my driveway, I noticed there was a box by my front door. My first thought was, that can't be for me, I haven't ordered anything. So, as soon as Bryant jumped out of the car, he ran over to see who it was for. He yelled out "It is for YOU Mama!" and quick;y brought it over. It was then that I saw it was from Tami, one of my favorite scrappy friends. She makes some really AMAZING things and has the cutest kids! Once I got the package open, I found out it was this:

A very cool wooden album. Her LSS sells these and can order them in names and words. She had one made with Bryant's name for me to decorate. I am so excited!! Thanks Tami so much!!! This is the coolest thing EVA! Your card is beautiful too! I am so inspired! I will have to think long and hard to make this a very special keepsake. WOW! Tami this is so COOL! I am sending you a huge cyber hug. I really love this and feel so special that you thought of me. Thank you so much!!

Happy Birthday? No it is not mine, but it is my friend Anne's. I did not want her to think that I had forgotten about her. Love you girl! We need to get together real soon and scrap! Just say the word...

I really can not say enough about all the great friends I have made through this great hobby of ours. You all inspire me everyday! Love you all!
